WOMEN appear to be rapidly coming to the fore in composition. Phyllis Tate was born in 1911, entered the Royal
Academy of Music in 1927, and studied there under Harry Farjeon until 1932. Miss Tate's Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra was written during the latter year and represents her first really big and important work. It is divided into the usual three movements : the first opens with a slow introduction which leads into a fugue; the second is an intermezzo; and the third is martial in character.

' The Navy Yesterday and Today. The Navy before the Great War (A)
In War '
Admiral Sir HERBERT W. RICHMOND,
K.C.B.
THREE sections of this series were broadcast in the autumn. (1) The Civil Service ; (2) Local Government; (3) Voluntary Social Service. The Navy now comes under review, and will be the subject of four broadcasts commencing this evening and ending with a discussion on Naval Disarmament on January 31. It is apparent that the Navy is one of the great problems of our time. Before the coming of aeroplanes its need was unchallenged as a machine of defence and security, and as a means of ensuring the import of food to an island that must starve without it. But is the Navy now an obsolete tool to be replaced by one more modern ? Will aeroplanes alone, or aeroplanes plus submarines and destroyers, replace the fighting ships of all sorts and sizes that make up the navy today ? Or will history repeat itself as it has a way of doing, and the battleship assert itself again.
To understand the function of the object to be examined is an essential preliminary to an examination, and, with this in view, the opening broadcast this evening is to deal with the Navy before 1914 in war, as a preliminary to the talk next Wednesday on the Navy before 1914 in peace. Admiral Sir Herbert W. Richmond 's opening broadcast this evening will deal with the imperative importance British Governments attached to a strong naval force during the great European wars in the eighteenth century. Its purposes were many; the observance of Treaty obligations ; our own security ; protection of our Colonies ; the preservation, if possible, of peace.
Listeners should read one or more of the Admiral's works before these talks begin : ' Naval Warfare ' and ' Economics and Naval Security ' (Benn) ; 'Naval Defence and Capture at Sea in War ' (Hutchinson).

Characters :

Characters :
' BOYS TOGETHER'
Translated by M. H. ALLEN from ' Les Grand Garcons,' by PAUL GÉRALDY
Characters :
Monsieur Pelissier. .... AUBREY MATHER Jacques, his son .... ROBERT SPEAIGHT Devreux, his friend GEOFFREY WINCOTT
Produced by M. H. ALLEN
ONE of the features of this programme is that Aubrey Mather will be in each of the three plays. Distinguished in the theatre for a succession of the most varied parts, he is also well-known on the air, especially for his performance of the outstanding part in Missing, Walter de la Mare's story which was broadcast on March 23, 1932. Aubrey Mather last broadcast in The Road to Ireland on July 26 and 28 this year. Tonight he is ' a vicar ' in Night Mail Blackmail, in which Gladys Young appears as ' a spinster ' ; he next impersonates the suave and epigrammatic maitre d'hotel in Chez Maurice ; and finally plays the part of M. Pelissier , a paternal, worried father who adores his son and cannot get on with him. The son will be portrayed by Robert Speaight , well-known to listeners. This play, now translated from the original French, is by the author of Les Noces D'Argent, Aimer, and Robert et Marianne, and has been in the repertoire of the Comedie Francaise since 1922, when it was first produced.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
